  1. Love to hear about sucess. Wish there were more people to guard our borders!

  2. If people over here stopped using it, there wouldn’t be a problem!

  3. Debra Fish says:

    What..they are taking Obama’s campaign money from him…what the heck?

  4. if it were legal, we could tax the addicts and there wouldn’t be massive amounts of violence along our borders.

  5. Wayne Burkes says:

    Yeah, close those BP stations out there in Texas where there are “no illegal traffickers” Barry. Lying c-sucking traitor.

  6. Too bad you cannot recoup the value of the seizure to fund the border war. That money would go a bit to fund guard benefits, pay, aid to guard families, etc.

  7. I say close the borders until we can get things under control here in the US!! Starting with getting rid of Obama!!!

  8. Ray Pini says:

    …bring the TROOPS home and fight the war with the Mexican Cartel… we are at war with the drug dealers…….

  9. WWO! that’s down close towhere I am from – Glad it am FROM there and not so close to all this bad stuff going on. I’m from Brownsville, with Matamoros, MX right across the river and bad stuff happens there a lot!

  10. Marg Kendall says:

    Put is towards the debt or let the authorities involved keep it for reward for doing a great job!

  11. Douglas Dunn says:

    wonder what the potus cut is,,,gotta be on something!

  12. Take the cash and burn the rest. border patrols have a hard job .

  13. That’s because we won’t pay the banana farmers or coffee grower a fair amount for their products and labor. There’s much more cocaine where that came from that still goes through.

  14. Kathy Bolsen says:

    Keep it up. I wish I could come help y’all!!!!!!!!!!

Why do you think the drug cartels are more violent in Mexico than the U.S.A.
